Box Office – Phantom opens better than Badlapur and Drishyam, sails through well

It was predicted in this column last week that Phantom would take an opening in the same range as Badlapur (7 crore) and Drishyam (8 crore). As it turned out though, the Kabir Khan directed film had a slightly better Friday, as it went on to bring in 8.5 crore at the Box Office. This was indeed a positive outcome for Saif Ali Khan since his last couple of solo starrers, Happy Ending (4 crore) and Bullett Raja (7.5 crore) had met with a poor fate. In comparison, the word of mouth as well as critical appreciation was better as well, which helped the Sajid Nadiadwala production grow further over the weekend.

This was evidenced in collections that jumped further on Saturday (12.78 crore), which was also a holiday due to Raksha Bandhan, and then Sunday (13 crore*), as a result of which Phantom managed to bring in around 34 crore. Now this is a heartening sign for

5 reasons why Kareena Kapoor Khan's 'Mary' song from Brothers is sau takka unimpressive!

While she is an actor par excellence, it seems Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan also loves (rather wants) to be known as the 'item queen'. In past few years she has done an array of exotic and naughty dance numbers (in films like Gabbar, Heroine, Dabnagg 2, Don, Billu, Agent Vinod) and now she adds yet another track to her list with 'Mera Naam Mary Hai' from the film Brothers.

While Kareena tries every bit to grab eyeballs with her latkas and jhatkas, hoot for her, Bebo somehow looks too sophisticated for the cheesy item number. Well, here are the five reasons that will make you also believe how Kareena looks a misfit in this song or she is simply not meant to do these numbers. Take a look:

  • Bollyspice
The axe forgets but the tree remembers – African proverb

Badlapur is a story about revenge.

One of the robbers, Liak (Siddiqui), is caught by the police and sent to jail, but his partner escapes with the money. Filled with anger and distress, Raghu devotes his life to take revenge on those who destroyed his world and will wait 15 years to fulfil his revenge, his “badla”.

Varun Dhawans Badlapur is a Rs 25 crore film - The complete details
In the times of Twitter world turning trade experts, anything and everything is being accepted on face value, as long as it is sensational. Even though Varun Dhawan had made it crystal clear that Badlapur is his most cost effective as well as quickest shot film ever, there have been rumors of all kind floating around the Sriram Raghavan film. One such story making the rounds is around the film's budget. "It is being said that the film has cost Rs. 50 crores to the makers (Eros and Dinesh Vijan).

This comes to around Rs. 25 crores, which is just perfect for a film like Badlapur which is commercial in its own way," informs our well-placed source. Though no one associated with

“Being a part of Main Tera Hero is an emotional decision” – Varun Dhawan

Bollywood’s young heartthrob Varun Dhawan speaks to Sunny Malik about his second film, Main Tera Hero, directed by his father and well-known filmmaker David Dhawan.

Main Tera Hero releases in UK cinemas on 4th April 2014 through Eros International.

You made a successful acting debut with Student Of The Year, and were praised for your acting skills by critics and audiences. Do you feel the pressure now that your second film is releasing?

I think, comedy as a genre is one of the most difficult genres to crack for an actor. Having said that, for a lead actor, you need to be romantic, intense and be a hero and on top of that, you need to be goofy and funny too. Sometimes you need to pull off a British kind of humour with straight face. That’s what I needed to do in Main Tera Hero and I have tried it.
